BotoxTM (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is the one of the most popular anti-ageing treatments and this is for good reason.
It is most commonly used for the treatment of wrinkles of the upper third of the face. These wrinkles are caused by repetitive movements such as frowning, raising of the eyebrows and smiling.
In younger people skin has sufficient elasticity to prevent permanent wrinkles from forming despite repetitive movements. Loss of skin elasticity as we progress beyond our early twenties causes permanent lines to form even when no expression is taking place.
BotoxTM injections can reduce the degree of muscle movement that creates lines when an individual frowns, smiles or raises their eyebrows. This reduction of movement will soften existing wrinkles and prevent the formation of deep lines in the future.
